From the history of British
education …
• Before 1870 education was voluntary and
many of the existing schools had been set up
by churches.
• Only 2% of children under 14 and 40% of

• From 1870, in response to changes brought

From the history of British edu…
• A “tripartite” system of secondary modern,
technical and grammar schools selected 11 yearold children at the end of their primary education
by means of an exam. The top 20% attended
grammar schools. Secondary modern and
technical schools dealt with more practical
subjects. Pupils from them were expected to
become manual workers and skilled workers
respectively, while those who attended grammar
schools were more likely to go on to university
and become professionals and managers.
• In the 1950s some people were dissatisfied with
the tripartite system.
• Comprehensive schools were introduced in the
1960s with the idea that pupils should not be
selected and streamed at such an early age. In
1993 90% of pupils attend such schools; the other
10% attend some remaining grammar or private

“Eleven plus”
• The system of secondary education in Britain
has been changed in recent years. Under the
old system, children took an examination
called the “eleven plus” at the age of 11. If
they passed this examination, they went to a
grammar school (high school) and if they
failed, they went to a secondary modern
• Under the new system, there is no
examination at the age of eleven, and the
grammar schools and secondary modern
schools have been replaced by large
comprehensives are “streamed”; others are
“unstreamed”. In a streamed school, pupils
are placed into classes according to their
ability. Children of high ability are in the “A”
stream, those of lesser ability in the “B”
stream and so on. In an unstreamed school,
children of mixed ability are placed together in
the classes.
